Science– This half term we are going to learn about plants, first we are going to identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants. Look at the pictures, do you know the names of any of these plants and flowers? When you go for your walk today have a look for them, you might see them in a garden, or a park or just on a verge of grass by the road. If you see one take a photo of it, but only if your grown up says it is safe to do so. When you get home use the photo to help you to draw a picture of the plants that you saw, look at the colour and the shape.

Did you know the names of any of the plants? They are bluebell, buttercup, daisy, ivy, rose, sunflower. How many of them did you see on your walk?

Maths– Here is lesson number four https://www.thenational.academy/year-1/maths/to-begin-to-understand-standard-units-of-measure-year-1-wk1-4

Art- Our learning objective for this lesson is to use a variety of art techniques to create the desired effect. Look at the picture below, it is called Sunflowers and was painted by a man called Vincent van Gogh. Do you recognise the flowers? What shape are they? What colours can you see? Vincent used oil paints to create his pictures, it is very thick so it leaves lines on the painting, can you see them?

Have a go at creating your own sunflower picture like Vincent’s. You could use coloured pencils, paints or crayons. If you don’t have them you could use different coloured paper to make a collage.
I would love to see your art work . See if you can take a photo of it and email it to me at lwarner@cirrustrust.uk
